As part of its summer lineup, CMH Summer Adventures will offer painting and photography enthusiasts the opportunity to study with the masters in British Columbia’s Bugaboos mountain range, amid some of the most stunning natural scenery in the Americas.
From August 5-8, 2012, guests of CMH Summer Adventures will be able to enroll in a Photography Workshop with John E. Marriott, the acclaimed wilderness photographer, at the Bugaboo Lodge. Returning to the Bugaboos for the third straight year, Marriott will join guests on their alpine adventures, while instructing the amateur photographer guests in how to capture the best digital images of the area’s dramatic wildflowers, framed by the jagged spires and glacial lakes of the Bugaboos range. And after fulfilling days of activity and photography, guests will join Marriott back at the lodge for gourmet alpine cuisine served family-style, followed by evening discussions about photographic techniques and new technology.
Following very successful workshops in 2010 and 2011, renowned Canadian painters Robert Genn and Liz Wiltzen will once again lead guests in a plein air Painting Workshop in the Bugaboos, from September 4-7, 2012. The assembled artists-in-training will be dropped off by helicopter in remote areas of the Purcell Mountains, along with Genn and Wiltzen, who will be available, upon request, to mentor and give critiques-or just let students explore, get inspired by the landscape and put brush to canvas in solitude. In discussing his involvement, Robert Genn added, “This is going to be a trip of a lifetime.”
The Photography Workshop is priced from CAD$3,065 and the Painting Workshop is priced from CAD$3,405; all rates are per person, based on double occupancy.
